** I was going to give this hotel 5 stars until one evening when I returned to my room and found an 'undesirable' object had been left there. No more has to be said on a family website, however I would urge anyone that stays here to be careful about the security of their room and its contents! I was upgraded to a suite on the top floor and the management apologised to me.
After this incident I think my rating is very fair and hopefully the hotel management do something to rectify the source of the problem I experienced **
The room I stayed in was large and well appointed, the bed was comfortable and came with a 32 inch TV, fridge and microwave oven. Overall the hotel is well kept and staff are helpful and friendly. Breakfast is resonable and above my expectations for a HI Express. The free WiFi is reliable and fast. There is a free shuttle bus available and we used it to go to and from the local train station which is useful for trips into NYC. Lots of shops and resturants nearby with a few within walking distance. Overall very good.
